Phil Stortzum of Nintendo Okie writes, "The Amazing Spider-Man film released in theaters last summer and alongside that Activision released a video game with the same name. Since then, the action-packed Spider-Man reboot has seen a DVD and Blu-ray release. To say that the Wii U port of the game that originally coincided with the July launch of the movie is a tad late would be an understatement. However, Wii U owners have their own version of the game in the form of The Amazing Spider-Man: Ultimate Edition, one with uses of the system’s unique controller and included downloadable content that other console users had to pay for. Should you swing with Spider-Man or hang out with some other superhero?"
